White Cane Days was held as part of the Coventry Woods Festival last Sunday (May 18). The weather was a bit better than last year, and there were a lot more attendees. The goat race and the cow plop bingo were big attractions, as well as a variety of food. Folks also had the opportunity to rent a goat.
The Leos had an obstacle course while the Lion Cubs set up some games for kids. Both were quite busy all day.
Rather than seeking donations, we used White Cane Days to talk to folks in the community and show them what Lions are about as well as market the Blues BBQ. Lions Terry, Leah, John, Chuck, Bob R. and Chris manned the table handing out information on the Blues BBQ as well as talking to folks about Lionism in general. The White Cane Committee had created some new posters that highlighted club activities with lots of pictures to attract attention and describe what we do.

Five BBQ tickets were sold, and several folks said they already had tickets. In general there was a lot of interest in the BBQ with many folks saying they would come.
Lion Secretary Barry, please accept this report as part of your minutes.
